See the grandeur of Venice by motor launch, cruising down the Grand Canal, which bisects the city and then exploring further on foot.

Departing by motor launch, you will first proceed along the Giudecca Canal and skim Rio San Trovado to reach the Grand Canal, often called the "street" with the finest houses in the world. The beautiful palazzi that line the two-mile canal are architectural wonders that have been home to the likes of Wagner and Lord Byron.

Cruising by Rio delle Poste will allow you to view the house of the explorer Marco Polo before continuing on to the Laguna Nord and passing by the Cemetery of Venice. You will also have an opportunity to view Murano from a distance before disembarking your motor launch nearby Rialto Mercato where you will commence the walking part of your tour. Your walk through the charming narrow streets of Venice gives you an amazing close-up look of the city and takes you by Campo Santo Stefano and then on to the legendary Rialto Bridge area where you will have some time to browse around. From here, it's on to St. Mark's Square where you can rejoin your motor launch and return to the ship or stay behind and do some shopping or further exploring on your own.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of moderate walking/standing and includes steps, inclines and uneven surfaces. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing,hats, sunglasses, and comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
